Abstract

Space debris is the space waste or space junk that is created by meteoroids, or unusable satellites, and the parts of the rocket that is just floating in space without any use. Space debris creates many threats to other working satellites or space stations. Increasing space debris creates more space debris, and this is known as Kessler syndrome. It affects the internet, and weather monitoring system. There are more than 9,600 tonnes of objects in earth’s orbits according to European Space Agency (ESA). So, this is the main challenge to manage the debris in space.
